Appeals are available to students whose financial aid is suspended due to an extraordinary circumstance such as illness, injury, death of a relative, or other extraordinary circumstance beyond their control, and that prevented the student from meeting SAP. Students may also appeal for MTF and additional degrees. The Appeal Committee meets monthly to review appeals. Appeal forms are available in the Financial Aid Office and detail all procedural requirements necessary to submit an appeal. The appeal process cannot be used if the student owes a repayment of student aid funds, is in default on a student loan, or for Warning Status. Quarterly appeal deadlines apply, please plan accordingly.
If the Appeal Committee approves the student’s appeal, the student’s financial aid will be reinstated in a probationary status at the time the appeal is approved. The student’s new award will be based on available funding at the time of reinstatement and may not be the same as the original award. The Appeal Committee may also impose other conditions as part of the approval. If the student does not meet the conditions of the approval, financial aid will be suspended.
